The Pleasures Of A Futuroscope., Dunsany,  Lord
3 Dunsany, LordThe Pleasures Of A Futuroscope. 11822
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2003.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The author's last major work, unpublished till now: edited by S. T. Joshi.

''in this powerful and moving novel, written in 1955, a futuroscope--a device that allows a viewer to see into the near or distant future--reveals an awful fate for humanity: a nuclear holocaust has destroyed nearly all human life on the planet. The great city of London is now merely an immense crater, filled in with water from the Thames. The pitiful remnants of humanity have been reduced to a Stone Age existence. The narrator, obsessively looking through the futuroscope, focuses upon the plight of a single family in their struggles to survive and fend off the many enemies, both animal and human, that surround them. When one of their number is kidnapped by a band of gypsies, we can only wonder at her fate in this brave new world of the distant future. Gripping, horrifying, touching, and fascinating, The Pleasures of a Futuroscope shows that Lord Dunsany had retained his literary powers undiminished to the end of his life''.

First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
This volume constitutes the first major selection of Joshi’s Lovecraftian essays to be published: from Lovecraft’s taste in films to his aesthetics of weird fiction; from autobiographical elements in his fiction to his use of pseudonyms; from his involvement with Weird Tales and the Munsey magazines to his discussions of contemporary political, social, and cultural events. An entire section features close readings of individual Lovecraft stories, studying their literary influences, their philosophical ramifications, and their fusion of thought and imagination. A previously unpublished essay reveals a new influence on Lovecraft’s great Antarctic novel, At the Mountains of Madness.

Lovecraft's New York Circle: The Kalem Club, 1924-1927., Lovecraft,  H. P. (ed. Mara Kirk Hart & S. T. Joshi)
12 Lovecraft, H. P. (ed. Mara Kirk Hart & S. T. Joshi)Lovecraft's New York Circle: The Kalem Club, 1924-1927. 18918
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2006.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
During H. P. Lovecraft's residence in New York City, his social and literary life centered upon a group of friends collectively known as the Kalem Club, so named for the initials of the surnames of original members--K, L, or M. Gatherings or meetings were frequently held in members’ homes, and particularly in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, for it was there that Lovecraft’s friend George Kirk lived, and where, in the building HPL utilized as the setting of 'Cool Air' Kirk operated his Chelsea Book Shop. From August 1924 until March 1927, George Kirk wrote almost daily to his fiancee in Cleveland, revealing many details of his interactions with the other Kalems. After nearly seventy years, the letters were discovered by Kirk’s daughter Mara Kirk Hart, who used portions of them as the basis for her fascinating chronicle of the Kalem Club, 'Walkers in the City'. Now expanding greatly upon that earlier work, she and S. T. Joshi have here assembled all the letters of George Kirk that relate information about the Kalem members and their activities during this time, together with representative writings of all the Kalem members during their most active and fruitful period.

13 Lovecraft, H. P. (ed. S. T. Joshi & David E. Schultz)Essential Solitude: The Letters Of H. P. Lovecraft and August Derleth: 1926-1931 (and) 1932-1937. 43059
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2013.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback originals.
Two volumes: 880 pages in total. In the first volume, Lovecraft’s relations to one of his most prominent colleagues and disciples, August Derleth (1909-1971), are recounted in the hundreds of letters they exchanged beginning in 1926. The youthful Derleth first wrote to Lovecraft, via Weird Tales magazine, in regard to an obscure work of weird fiction, and their subsequent correspondence deals extensively with the history of weird fiction, the two authors’ ongoing attempts to publish stories in pulp magazines, Derleth’s evolution into a sensitive writer of regional fiction and of detective stories, and debates over such issues as spiritualism, occultism, the literary use of coincidence, points of language and style, and other matters. Especially noteworthy are several letters by Lovecraft that Derleth interpreted as giving him permission to elaborate upon Lovecraft’s pseudomythology, which Derleth named the Cthulhu Mythos. In the second volume, Lovecraft and Derleth - now noted luminaries in Weird Tales and the world of pulp magazines - continue to write letters on an almost weekly basis. Lovecraft, however, is plagued with self-doubt as a result of the rejection of At the Mountains of Madness by Weird Tales and other professional setbacks. Meanwhile, Derleth is beginning to make a name for himself in the realm of detective fiction with the creation of Solar Pons; he has also begun sensitive mainstream writing that is finding placement in prestigious little magazines of the period. Derleth himself surreptitiously submitted Lovecraft’s The Shadow over Innsmouth and The Dreams in the Witch House to Weird Tales; the former was rejected, the latter accepted. In all, Lovecraft wrote nearly 400 letters to Derleth, but only about 40 of Derleth’s letters to Lovecraft survive. First published in hardcover in 2008.

15 Lovecraft, H. P. (Joshi & Schultz, eds)H. P. Lovecraft: Letters To Rheinhart Kleiner. 16476
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2005.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
298 pages. Rheinhart Kleiner (1892-1949) was one of H. P. Lovecraft’s earliest correspondents. The recipient of the first issue of Lovecraft’s amateur paper, the Conservative, in 1915, Kleiner challenged Lovecraft to reconsider his dogmatic views on race, literature, and society. This volume prints, for the first time, the complete surviving letters of Lovecraft to Kleiner, showing how Lovecraft gradually transformed himself from an eighteenth-century fossil to a participant in the society and culture of his time. The letters address such wide-ranging subjects as erotic love, racial prejudice, the art of poetry, Lovecraft’s boyhood and upbringing, and much else. Richly philosophical, these letters display the fundamentals of Lovecraft’s distinctive cosmic vision. In an extensive appendix are found all of Lovecraft’s and Kleiner’s poems addressed to each other, along with Kleiner’s several provocative essays on Lovecraft. Meticulously edited and annotated by David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi.

Collected Essays Vol 1 (Amateur Journalism)., Lovecraft,  H. P. (S. T. Joshi, ed.)
16 Lovecraft, H. P. (S. T. Joshi, ed.)Collected Essays Vol 1 (Amateur Journalism). 13101
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2004.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Discovering the amateur press in 1914, Lovecraft immediately flooded the many small papers of his friends and colleagues with contributions discussing the nature, purpose, and future of amateur journalism. He also edited his own magazine, The Conservative (1915-23), filling it with additional essays. In these articles Lovecraft discusses the conflict between the United and the National Amateur Press Associations; the halcyon days of the amateur movement (1885-95); and the needs and betterment of the amateur cause. We read of Lovecraft's bitter feuds with his fellow amateurs; his exhaustive critiques of their writing; and, most poignant of all, his touching affirmation of What Amateurdom and I Have Done for Each Other, in which he concludes simply: What Amateur Journalism has given me is life itself. 440 pages.

17 Lovecraft, H. P. (S. T. Joshi, ed.)Collected Essays Vol 5 (Philosophy, Autobiography & Miscellany). 20347
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2007.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
Volume 5. 382 pages: in this fifth and final volume of Lovecraft’s Collected Essays will be found a rich vein of Lovecraft’s philosophical writings. All texts are extensively annotated, with critical and bibliographical notes, by S. T. Joshi.

''A lifelong student of metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, and other branches of philosophy, Lovecraft early declared himself a forthright materialist and atheist, and defended his views in numerous controversies with colleagues. Such essays as Idealism and Materialism: A Reflection, and the In Defence of Dagon essays outline the essentials of Lovecraft’s philosophical thought, including such issues as free will, the improbability of theism, and cosmic pessimism. In his later years the problems of politics and economics came to the forefront of his attention, and in the essays Some Repetitions on the Times, A Layman Looks at the Government, and the unpublished The Journal and the New Deal, Lovecraft vigorously argues for a moderate socialism to relieve the widespread unemployment brought on by the Depression. The problem of art in the modern age also concerned Lovecraft, and in the unpublished essay A Living Heritage: Roman Architecture in Today’s America, Lovecraft condemns modern functionalist architecture as inherently ugly and the product of sterile theory. This volume also contains Lovecraft’s autobiographical essays, including the delightful A Confession of Unfaith, telling of his shedding of religious belief, and the piquant Cats and Dogs, in which cats stand as symbols for the abstract beauty of a boundless cosmos''.

Collected Essays Volume 3: Science., Lovecraft,  H. P. (S. T. Joshi, ed.)
18 Lovecraft, H. P. (S. T. Joshi, ed.)Collected Essays Volume 3: Science. 17731
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2006.
First hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Volume 3. A self-proclaimed ''mechanistic materialist,'' Lovecraft took an unremittingly scientific view of reality. This perspective informed the whole of his literary output, but is nowhere so clearly seen as in this assemblage of his writings on science. Beginning with the scientific journals, treatises and astronomy columns of his early years, and continuing throughout his life, these writings illuminate Lovecraft's thought in a unique, and until now, largely unappreciated way. As a bonus, almost two-dozen of HPL's hand lettered star maps are reproduced. 358 pages.

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2012.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
Third collection of stories, vignettes, sketches, and parables highlights those literary qualities that have made Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. a phenomenon in contemporary weird fiction: an impressionistic, prose-poetic style that boldly confronts the reader with vivid metaphors, images of raw horror and exquisite beauty, and a refusal to shy away from the extremes of human experience—love, sex, death, terror, and ecstasy. Pulver continues, as in his earlier work, to draw upon H. P. Lovecraft, Robert W. Chambers, and other classic writers for his inspiration, but he takes his cues also from rock music, avant-garde prose and poetry, and, most of all, from the spectacular phantasmagoria of life in the twenty-first century. Introduction by Matt Cardin.
